    Heath tracker for people who wear automatic watches

    I used to wear automatic watches and then switched to iwatch. I love the health features of the watch. specially its motivation to walk, exercise and heart health.
    Now after some years my love for automatic watches is coming back. Is there a health tracking device which I can wear along with my automatic watch which gives me more (or equal) health features as the iwatch?

    Not sure if fitbit can compare to iwatch.

    I purchased this smart buckle in June of 2019 when it was on clearance for $20, and it is supposed to add fitness tracking functionality to your automatic watch. I've never gotten around to testing it out, so I can't really tell you how well it works.

    Frederique Constant has something similar, which they refer to as the e-strap,

    The smart buckle is a genius idea – however it would have to have good syncing to the cloud or at least to a phone, since most of us don't wear just once watch all the time.

    Some people I know wear these rings that do fitness/health tracking. Oura and Motiv are two brands I've heard of. Generally positive reviews of Oura, don't know much more beyond that.

    apart from various smart buckles, bands and such you can wear smart band on other hand they more discrete and pack some nice functions.

    but they won't me equal to full iWatch or Garmin/Fitbit.

    I've tried these smart buckles. They suck. They are far too bulky and thick to use, especially considering that they go on the underside of the wrist, right between e.g. your wrist and a desk...

    I’ve noticed a lot of people continuing to wear a watch of their left wrist and a health tracker of some sort of their right.

    I wear a Motiv ring on the same hand I wear a watch on (instead of a wedding band). It tracks steps, heart rate, sleep patterns etc.

    I would just put a FitBit on your other wrist if you wear an auto......

    I wear a Fitbit charge 3 on my right wrist, pretty happy with that setup. Smart watches on my left wrist are strictly verboten
